      Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

      It has a velvet texture but has too much fall out. I would not recommend for oily skin or for full coverage. It goes on matte but does not stay on very long. I am disappointed because I am usually a medium beige and this was the closest to my complexion how ever when opening and swatching it on it was way too pale for my complexion, just wish they had more options.

            This is a great powder. I know they say to use it like a foundation, but I use it like a setting powder over my liquid foundation. I also put the powder on over my moisturizer and go. It's a great product for such a reasonable price!

              This is my everyday foundation! My concealer tends to be dewy in its finish, so this really matte-fies my face and gives a consistently even tone for applying makeup. LOVE IT!

                Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

                I was looking for the NYX pressed powder I bought in the past - I think it was called blotting powder - so I bought this instead. I have never used a powder foundation before, and most days, I don't use foundation at all, just a moisturizer/sunscreen followed by pressed powder. Since this is supposed to be foundation, I thought it would give my skin a nice even tone. But, it doesn't, and it doesn't really work as a pressed powder, either, because my nose still looks slightly shiny. I will look for something different after this is used up.

                Comments about NYX Professional Makeup Stay Matte Powder Foundation:

                It's a nice powder foundation for sure. Price is good but it does not last long AT ALL. That's a disappointment for sure. Other powders I used lasted at least a couple of months. This one is lasting barely a month. Little disappointed considering I apply only once a day with the bronzer and finishing powder and I'm hitting pan at two weeks, and out in four weeks. That is too disappointing.

                Love this overall. Only complaint is how quickly they are gone! I honestly apply this once a day to my face for a week and I've used up most of the compact. For the price though, the coverage is insane and beautiful on the skin.

                  I like this product, i use it over top of liquid foundation and it blends nicely. The only downfall is a lot falls out of the pan, it's very loose for being compact.
